More students advance in writing competition


In last week’s edition of The Crossroads Chronicle, Swainsboro Primary announced the names of students who would go on to represent their school in the next phase of the Young Georgia Authors Writing Competition.


Coverage of school winners continues in this edition of The Crossroads as four more local schools have named their respective grade-level winners. These students will advance to the system competition as well.


First up, the winners from Twin City Elementary.


Madelyn McNeely won the kindergarten division with her work, “My Dog’s Name is Josie.”


Jackson Hodges rose to the top of the first grade competitors with “World Champs.”


Ella Jo Hooks’s “Football Friday” won the second grade division, and Brayden Telgen’s “Treasure in My Back Yard” won the third grade division.


Fourth grader Maggie Rowland won out of her class with “Squirrel Thief” while Brodie Cate Johnson, a fifth grader, finished first with her original piece, “Not Your Normal Hero.”


Emanuel County Institute will be represented by sixth grade winner Lawson Frye, seventh grade winner Jayden Purvis, eighth grade winner Lola Walden, freshman winner Hallie Kate Johnson, sophomore winner Alaina Conley, junior winner Natalie Akridge, and senior winner Justin Williams.


Swainsboro Middle School’s seventh grade division was won by Dei’Vion Davis while the eighth grade division was won by Yasmine Rios. (Information about a sixth grade winner was not provided as of press time. Should there be a sixth grade winner for Swainsboro Middle, The Chronicle will provide an update as soon as possible.)


Finally, four students rose to the top with submissions for Swainsboro High: freshman Abigail Phillips, sophomore Quintus Williams, junior Eleighana Warren, and senior Savannah Reynolds.
